In the IC you mentioned adding a nameplate and more features, did you end up doing that or is this a GB for a R2 of the same board, I would love to get the same board, if the changes were made do you have a pic of a render of what they look like? I have yet to see these changes and would like to base my decision on how the board looks if it does have these changes.

Went with Grey (Elephant theme, why not) and chose the brass even though it's not PVD.

The kit says it comes with a "diffuser arylic". What is that for? The board doesn't have underglow lights (as far as I know).

Personally, I love the way brass sounds compared to Aluminum.  I went with it because it can really help make boards sound better.

Looks to be E-Black, if you look at R1, there are a lot of gray samples too .

Gotcha. I may be mistaken, but the album doesn't have Gray samples? The ones featured look to be black and silver.

I think it's block with arrow key. However, it is quite unclear.

It is the block with arrow key.  There is only one silver with blocker from R1.  Guess how I know.   :cool:

If I select the "WK" option, I'm able to have the seamless look without a blocker, correct?

Oof I'm still deciding whether to stay with grey or go with black instead. Do you have comparisons or examples of the board in Grey? Most of the ones I could see are in Black/Silver/Purple/Blue.
